Best Podcast Editing and Production Companies
You just finished recording your latest podcast episode! Now it’s time to sit behind your computer screen for a few hours messing with your podcast audio in your editing software, mix in your intro and outro, normalize your segments, remove that coughing fit… you get the picture.
Editing podcast episodes is a lot of work. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do the fun stuff (making great content) and outsource everything else to a service that could turn your raw audio into a professionally produced podcast episode? Well, you can!
Podcast Editing Services partner with you by taking the editing, mixing, and producing off your hands, letting you free up more of your time to promote your show or do something you enjoy (like sleep!).
We scrubbed the internet and found the 14 top podcast editing services available for hire. Scroll through this guide to find the service that’s best for your needs and your budget.
The Best Podcast Services
These are the top companies we have personal experience with, we've met the teams, and that we highly recommend to Buzzsprout podcasters.
Resonate Recordings - $139/episode ($556/month)
The team of audio professionals at Resonate Recordings has provided production services for feature films, broadcast television, multiple albums, top chart podcasts, and audiobooks.
Their simple pricing structure and streamlined production processes are designed with you in mind. No matter what level of service you may need, their podcast editing & mixing services are sure to benefit your podcast and make your content shine.
While there is a Standard editing package available for $59/episode, it doesn't include any "interior editing" of the audio itself and only covers stitching your various segments together.
If you go with Resonate Recordings, we recommend you get Premium Editing.
We Edit Podcasts - $349/month
When We Edit Podcasts was founded in 2015 by Carli van Heerden, she set out to give podcasters back their time while creating high-quality content without the cost.
That mission has since blossomed into a thriving company with a multitude of service offerings. WEP continues to educate and support a new generation moving into the podcasting sphere.
You can get your first episode edited at a discounted rate if you want to "test drive" their audio editors before signing up for a monthly plan. Every monthly plan also comes with unlimited podcast hosting with Buzzsprout.
Other Podcast Editing and Production Companies
Since we don't have personal experience with these companies. These podcast services are listed from less expensive to more expensive with custom plans at the bottom. Just remember, podcast editing is one area where you get what you pay for.
Podcast Press - $160/month
As Pat Flynn's recommended podcast production service, Podcast Press is a one-stop-shop for any podcaster looking to outsource their editing. You can start with their Podcast Editing Package and then upgrade additional features as needed.

If you're on a tight budget but don't want to settle for subpar audio quality, Podcast Press is a good first step into the world of outsourced post-production services.

They add all your additional audio files (intros, outros, section breaks, and adverts), and master your audio file by adding broadcast compression, limiting, normalizing and EQs.
